Los Roques Bonefish
Los Roques Archipelago, which lies 80 miles off Venezuela’s mainland, along the Caribbean Sea, is considered among the best bone fishing places in the World. The Archipelago consists of forty-eight keys or islands; when overlooked from a plane, the look like a string of pearls against the azure blue of the Caribbean. Los Roques has been appointed as a National Park, and no new building can be constructed on the islands. Long-line fishermen have been forbidden and other kinds of fishing have been restricted. As a result, the amount of fish dwelling there has increased steadily, while other types of game fish have emerged into these protected waters, like big tarpons up to 80lb. and even 100lb. Big permit and enormous snook to 20lb. have been hooked and released also.
Bonefishing in Venezuela
No matter how one fished for bonefish, perhaps the most challenging way is to wade the flats, spot mailing fish, creep slowly within casting distance and them make a presentation. If the fish is not startled, it will most likely pick up a jig or fly, and within seconds, the angler is hooked to a miniature-size Express train. Conventional tackle Anglers may choose to fish within the boat at deeper areas, where huge schools of feeding bonefishes can be found. In those cases, 30 or more catches can be expected in a short period of time. Regardless of their size, bonefish can strip more line than any other fish of comparable size.
